early autumn harvest

the small peach tree in our back yard is a real trooper. it didn't get watered much over the summer since the house was empty so when we got here the peaches were so small we thought it was an apricot tree. once we started watering it and the fruit grew three branches broke because of the weight (should have thinned them peaches). yet, after all was said and done it yielded several bushels of sweet little freestone peaches. we ate them every day for a good two weeks. they were delicious. i love fruit trees.
